Overall the school was great for me. As far as diversity it’s mostly Whites and Asians, very few Hispanics. The principal and the school is very focused on sports and academics, because fo that arts are somewhat pushed aside. However, there is something for everyone so I would recommend going to TPHS!

Great high school! Big enough to have lots of resources and opportunities, but not gigantic. Strong academics and sports, along with great school spirit!
Torrey Pines teachers were always ready and willing to help out their students with academic or personal problems. Unfortunately, during my time at Torrey Pines, we had multiple threats made against our school but I always felt safe because of how well the administration handled the situations and worked with law enforcement. During a crisis, the administration not only protected us physically but they also provided extra counselors to protect our minds. Torrey Pines not only fueled our minds and prepared us for college it also supported our creativity and allowed us to grow into our own people. While at Torrey Pines I made so many amazing friends but I also found incredible mentors with so many of my teachers. I am proud to say that I am a Torrey Pines High School Alumni.
